AbilityOne Program

AbilityOne

In 1973, the United States Congress passed what was then called the Javits Wagner O’Day Act, currently known as the AbilityOne Program. This program allows federal government agencies the opportunity to set aside contract opportunities for the production of goods and attainment of services, to employ people with vocational disabilities.

Leaders of Phoenix recognized the opportunity this law provided for the Huntsville Community. Today, AbilityOne contracts account for nearly $40 million in annual sales for Phoenix and over 700 jobs for individuals in six different states.
